Okay now I am so freaking confused. Is HIV/AIDS found in saliva or Not. People on here are saying yes, how else will you be able to take a oral AIDS test.

AMFAR AIDS HANDBOOK
HOW HIV IS NOT TRANSMITTED - Chapter 3, Page 47

"- talking, shaking hands or casual contact
- hugging or ordinary kissing (there is a REMOTE risk that deep kissing -french kissing or tongue kissing-could lead to infection, especially if open sores are present on the lips, tongue, or mouth)
-sharing kitchens, lunchrooms, dishes, or eating utensils
- touching floors, walls, door knobs,or toilet seats; or sharing offices, restrooms, computers, telephones, or writing utensils
- being bitten by mosquitoes, fleas, bedbugs and other insects.

If precautions are taken to avoid blood-to-blood contact, there is no evidence that HIV transmission occurs in a nonsexual, non-needle sharing relationship with a person who is HIV positive"

Now hear this!! Saliva does contain HIV but in very low quantities. The oral test is not getting salive fromm your mouth it is getting CELLS fron your gums.which just happen to be in your mouth. D.J.
